I was wondering how long after surgery can I be intimate.

Haha, my partner was wondering the same thing and was too scared to touch me.

I think you'll know when you are up to it. It took me about 2 weeks to recover from the surgery which i think is a long time compared to most. Then you just have to deal with the port pain for a few more weeks. Id say 3 weeks and i was in good condition again.

Everyones different though and i think you'll know when you are feeling up to it.

My surgeon wants me back in the gym two days after surgery... but 6 weeks for sexual activity. Everybody is different, just do not over due it... regardless of how you are getting your exercise.

I actually resumed ummm 'bedroom activity' 3 days post op and everything was fine. Hope it isn't TMI, but being on top for the next couple of weeks is definitely a good idea ;-)

As long as your feeling better its ok. I did the day after surgery. I was over night at the hospital, just hadda be careful my surgeon said no birth control for 3 weeks following surgery because of the high blood clot risk. Be sure to use CONDOMS!

      Going in on Tuesday. Things are arranged (need to order a cab to the station because it's too early for a bus going there) and I'm getting more nervous by the hour.

      I feel like I've finally gotten past the biggest hurdle. Surgery date is September 6th, the day after Labor Day, and yesterday I got my insurance approval letter. I've followed everything they've told me to do, and I've even lost 30 lbs on my own since hubby had to change his diet for diabetes. No worries now about having to do 4 weeks of the liver shrinking diet instead of 2. On my initial visit, if I had gained just 5lbs I would have had to do 4 weeks. It's getting closer. Just 2 more months to wait.

        Although the prep work took energy, I found the biggest hurdle was post-operative. The first 48 hrs were extremely uncomfortable. I did an overnight and trying to down the liquids, Tylenol, and especially the barium was rough. Thankfully though, I got away with only having to have 1 belly injection after surgery. Needless are not my thing.

      I am looking for people to connect with that are 4-5 years out. Many of the support sights I go to are all newbies. And while I enjoyed that when i first had my surgery and found it useful, I am looking to exchange ideas with folks that are out a few years. I am slowly gaining weight back and losing my excitement. I don't want that!
